RICHMOND COUNTY, Va. — Two dogs were shot and left on the side of the road in the Haynesville area of the Northern Neck on Sunday.

Bradley Stevens said his dogs, Keno and Felon, ran away Sunday morning.

He posted on his social media that they were missing and said she spent the day looking for them.

Later in the day, someone called Stevens and said they saw two dogs lying on the side of a road that matched his dogs' descriptions.

Stevens said he assumed the dogs were hit and killed by a car. He said he sent his dad to retrieve the bodies because he said he couldn't bear the thought of seeing his pets like that.

When his dad got to the scene, he said he found the dogs were shot. One dog was shot in the head and one in its stomach, he said. He also noted the dogs' bodies had been stacked on top of each other.

Stevens said Richmond County Sheriff's Office believed the dogs were shot somewhere else and dropped off where they were eventually found.

Stevens said he is heartbroken and confused. He said his dogs were very friendly and approachable.

His Rottweiler, he said. had just turned two years old last week and he's had his American bully for over two years.
